CapricornDecember 22 - January 19
Capricorn, you can shine even brighter. Over the next few days, we collectively experience Mercury (planet of communication and mental realms), shifting out of Gemini, and into Taurus. As a result, this slightly alters the focus of our individual Mercury retrograde experiences, powerfully illuminating new spheres for us to work with, understand and heal. Capricorn, you’ve likely been focused on the nitty gritty details of life; work, routine, life admin and obligations. These are of course important spheres to nurture, but the universe is now inviting you into a space of self-expression and celebration. This could be a time to reflect on whether or not your gifts, talents and service are being truly seen and honored by those around you. Perhaps it’s time to put yourself out there, in a new way. This could mean anything from finally asking your crush out, to nominating yourself for a leadership role. It’s up to you to honor your potential.
Capricorn, you’ve been connecting with your roots, your home, what it means to feel safe and held in the world, your foundations. As April starts out with the New Moon in Aries, you’ll be sinking deeper into these realms. This will be an invitation to build a home for yourself, where all of your parts are welcomed, included and taken into consideration. It’s important to take an honest look at your past, even if it hurts or feels uncomfortable. This will help you to acknowledge how far you’ve come, how much you’ve healed. Conversations may need to be had with your family or housemates. Be open, be loving, be honest with your feelings, and receive what they have to say to you.
When Venus enters Pisces on the 5th, you’ll feel like expressing yourself from a very tender and loving space. It’ll be a great time to connect with others on an intellectual level. When Mars enters Pisces as well on the 14th, you won’t have any issues with voicing your desires, and the exchange of ideas may even turn you on.
On the 10th, when Mercury enters Taurus, you’ll be feeling extra creative. If you’ve been meaning to take up public speaking, start a podcast or a vlog, write a book, this is the time to start.
Worldwide social events may start to feel a bit out of control this month when Jupiter and Neptune meet in their home sign. I encourage you to find solace in your exchanges, ideas and interactions. Don’t keep your worries bottled up. Connecting with others and seeing different points of view can be very helpful and even healing. Don’t just accept the information that you’re given. Do your research before settling for the truth.
The Full Moon in Libra on the 16th will highlight your professional path. It’ll be a good time to ask yourself why you want what you want. Don’t be afraid to question everything you’ve been striving for. If it’s the real thing it won’t falter.
Taurus Season comes shining through on the 19th, inviting you to connect with your inner child. You’ve been working on feeling safe and held, and now it’s time to let go. Allow yourself to feel like a child again. Carve out the space for this, after work, in between breaks. What gives you joy? What would you love to do that you haven’t made time for in so long? Please, give yourself this gift.
The last days of the month are intense. Pluto will go retrograde in your sign, where it has been for the past 13 years, on the 29th. This will awaken old wounds that are ready to be healed. In your case these wounds have to do with who you are and who you want to be. Mercury enters Gemini on the same day, making it a great time to plan a new and improved health regimen. And we end the month with the New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Taurus on the 30th, subtly awakening your creative fire. Let the beauty of your self-expression bloom at its own pace.

Ruling Planet: Saturn, the Planet of Challenge
Where You’ll Find Them: Working their butt off, planning for retirement, stacking their money
What They Avoid: Laziness, procrastination, small talk
Capricorn, the 10th sign of the zodiac, is often the most hard-working and ambitious. In fact, Capricorn would benefit from not taking their selves or their lives as seriously they do — but that’s way easier said than done. They were born to be successful, and they feel a huge drive to surpass their own expectations and crush all of their goals. But unlike some super assertive signs, Capricorn isn’t extremely flashy when it comes to their determined nature. They keep it really low-key, only speaking when they feel like what they have to say improves upon the silence, and only laughing when they truly mean it. Capricorn keeps it real, even if it’s too real for the masses to handle, and that’s what makes them so special and unforgettable. The sarcastic and cynical Capricorn plays absolutely no games.
When you ask a Capricorn what they want to achieve, the list will be endless, and it will be extremely impressive. Capricorns thrive in positions of authority, such as being a business person, a lawyer, an entrepreneur, a principal or administrator, etc…They don’t do as well when it comes to taking orders from others, and that’s mostly because Capricorn does a much better job of calling the shots — they intuitively know what must be done to get the best possible results and they wouldn’t want to waste any time trying out other methods. Even if Capricorn works for someone else, they often become distinguished team members who are given leadership positions.
Having a Capricorn as a friend means that you have a constant shoulder to lean on. But don’t think that means cry on — Capricorn has little tolerance for people who feel sorry for themselves. Capricorn is the zodiac sign that experiences the most challenging experiences in their lifetime, but that also makes them the wisest, strongest and most mature of all the signs. Because Capricorn has such high standards for their own life journey, they know what it means to fight and to be a warrior, and they will love you in a tough-love manner to teach you to also stay strong amidst adversity.
As a lover, Capricorn has to constantly work on tearing down the walls they so carefully built. Capricorn must avoid letting their workaholic tendencies cause a rift in any relationship they do begin. Capricorn is best suited for a relationship where their partner agrees to let them pursue their passions and independent interests, and where they can feel motivated and inspired by their partner. They can’t be with someone who is unsure about their life direction or who holds them back from going after their ultimate goal. Still, Capricorn’s romantic lesson is to avoid trying to check off all the items of what an “ideal match” looks like, and to open up to the variety of possibilities that the Universe may present them with. Sometimes the high standards that Capricorn impose are more liberating than anything. Capricorn can shock their lover by loving them uninhibitedly, and without skepticism. It takes a very special kind of lover to see that side of Capricorn. It’s worth the patience and effort.
